I read a hub written by a 90+ point hubber, and one of the suggestion on there was to use a site called TraffUP for increasing traffic. Without even thinking to check, i registered over there and placed up my links, which seemed brilliant.
Within minutes I had increased traffic and every thing was going fine!
This afternoon I refreshed my accounts page to be met with violations, and it referred to traffic violation.
I asked why this could be and a hubpages staff member confirmed that it was TraffUP that was the violation, so I have instantly removed all of my links from that site entirely!
The problem I have now is that the hubpages staff member closed my question for more responses, so I couldn't reply saying that I have removed the violations.
Will this automatically be noticed? or will my hubs be removed etc? My account banned? Literally I have used the site for less than 24 hours and have removed it, it would be a huge shame to loose all I have done/ everyone I have met on hubpages since my arrival.
Yes nasake, it will be automatically noticed and the violation removed after you cease to recieve traffic from this source for a couple of days.No need to worry - you won't lose anything bar the Traffup traffic. I made the same mistake a number of months back after seeing Traffup recommended by a number of established hubbers and didn't realise it was a violation to use this source - in fact at the time i don't think it was as it was a couple of months before i received the violation warnings.
BTW in my experience whilst you could get quick and high volumes of traffic from Traffup it did not appear to be good quality traffic as i believe most of the visits tended to come from people just clicking on your links to get points so their own links will get clicks - so no great loss.
The hub that suggested you use traffup should be flagged so it can be revised to tell people not to use it on hub pages.
No I'm not necessarily bothered about the traffic, just my hubs and the community. I am trying to build up an online presence, so I guess it would be better to have traffic that cares

I know the basics. Write, write, and write. Throw keywords in that attract people to the articles. Communicate and post on the forums and ask questions. But, what are some other ways to get followers to your hubpage? Thanks, George

My Google AdSense is in violation due to the fact that I canceled my adsense account by mistake. I got confused when trying to restore the account and somehow in the process made another account. I'm very disappointed with Google for not having a live person to speak with in these types...

I ask a simple question: which hubbers are the best or have lifted you up to above what you can be.It is time to give a little praise. Perhaps I should start out with a few. Nope that would be wrong.These folks that just give me a boost, take time for a critical note. Send a special comment and...

Is there a way to get rid of unwanted traffic sites that attach a link to our hubs without our knowledge? I try to individually monitor my hubs for suspicious traffic and have written two letters to the offender who has sent me 8 visits on one hub this week. Now HubPages has marked my hub with a...
